Riassunto: This book is written from the point of view of a child who has Selective Mutism. Selective Mutism is a condition that affects about 1% of the population of children. This condition has been more studied and it is connected with social anxiety. This book is a guide to parents, children, and educators to understand what Selective Mutism is, and it provides some suggestions of strategies on how to help the child become more comfortable at school and in other places where he/she feels anxious. Margaret Scott's illustrations help children relate to the feelings portrayed in the book. This book can be used at home, at school, at a psychologist office, and with extended members of family.
